Haggai 1:3-11 New King James Version (NKJV)

3 Then the word of the Lord came by Haggai the prophet, saying,  4 “Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple[a] to lie in ruins?”  5 Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways!


“You have sown much, and bring in little;
You eat, but do not have enough;
You drink, but you are not filled with drink;
You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm;
And he who earns wages,
Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.”

7 Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways!  8 Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the Lord.  9 “You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?” says the Lord of hosts. “Because of My house that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own house.  10 Therefore the heavens above you withhold the dew, and the earth withholds its fruit.  11 For I called for a drought on the land and the mountains, on the grain and the new wine and the oil, on whatever the ground brings forth, on men and livestock, and on all the labor of your hands.”
